#125. Heritage Square Park

Heritage Square Park was our second to last park.  We’d been putting it off since you have to pay admission to the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum to visit the park behind the building.  We wanted to make sure we had enough time to enjoy both the museum and the park.

Features:

  • Playground: None
  • Gazebo
  • Decorative Fountain
  • Museum with Gift Shop
  • Bathrooms: Inside Museum

The museum was fascinating, with historical displays on four floors.  I asked the staff, and they said that the tower is only open a few times per year.  We’ll have to come back for the candlelight tours in the fall!

Mom Tips:  There are a lot of displays in the museum that are easily accessed and touched by little hands.  Weston and Sully were a bit young to appreciate most of the museum, so I spent a lot of time hovering instead of enjoying the displays.  I definitely want to go back and spend more time perusing and learning about our city’s history.

Kid Tips:  The boys loved the soda fountain display, but wished it was in operation on the hot day we went.  The gazebo in the park was a perfect place for one of their ‘shows,’ and they want to come back for one of the concerts held in the park sometime soon.
